Godfrey, Ill. – This year’s Fall Fest celebration will have food and fun as usual, but is also a great chance for students to learn about ways to get involved on campus.
A well-rounded college experience is more than going to class – it’s about meeting new people, exploring hobbies and getting involved with a community – and there are plenty of opportunities for all of the above at Lewis and Clark Community College.
From Student Government Association and career clubs for Nursing and Dental Hygiene (to name only a few) to Phi Theta Kappa honor society and interest-based groups like E.C.O. Club and the Asian Pop Culture Club, there’s a niche for just about everyone.
Student Activities puts on Fall Fest every year, and most of the college’s clubs and activities turn out to recruit interested new students.
“Fall Fest is an opportunity where students can relax and have fun, but still become informed,” said Jared Hennings, coordinator of Student Activities. “As important as going to class is, it’s also important to have a balanced experience, and to take advantage of extracurricular options available through joining a club or attending a Student Activities event.”
Burgers, hot dogs, chips and rice krispies or brownies will be free to attendees, who can also take advantage of many giveaways.
There will be an obstacle course, joust competition and bungee run or rock wall climbing apparatus, a caricaturist, balloon-making clowns, a face painter, psychic and DJ on campus, and the public is welcome to attend.
“I remember when I was a freshman here – I knew I’d get more out of my two years if I got involved,” said Pat Hunt, who is now president of Student Activities.
In addition to the other clubs and organizations on campus, Student Activities puts on events every month that are opportunities for students - whether they're part of a club or organization or not - to meet one another and have a good time.
“We’ve got a bunch of stuff coming up,” Hunt said. “Stay tuned.”
